The numerical treatment of the pressure equation is briefly described. Some improvements to the classical BEM are presented that ensures the accuracy of the results. They are necessary to ensure a good accuracy of the results in a curved geometry as encountered in turbomachinery. The technique of resolution in a complete stage of turbomachinery (stator+ rotor) is presented. The aim is to solve the pressure equation in such a case as easily as in the case of a simple row. Firstly a subdomain technique is presented that allows to take into account a moving mesh. Secondly the management of the
